Named in honor of an episode of The X-Files, Massachusetts outfit Killswitch Engage are widely credited with pioneering the metalcore scene. Formed in 1999 from the ashes of post-hardcore outfits Overcast and Aftershock, frontman Jesse Leach, bassist Mike D’Antonio, guitarist Joel Stroetzel and drummer Adam Dutkiewicz first performed together while opening for death metal band In Flames, before releasing their self-titled debut album in 2000. After landing a deal with Roadrunner Records, the group continued to build their fan base with 2002 sophomore Alive or Just Dreaming and experienced the first of many line-up changes when Dutkiewicz switched to guitar and Tom Gomes briefly came on board as drummer. A battle with depression forced Leach to quit the group shortly after, with Blood Has Been Shed’s Howard Jones serving as his replacement, while the merry-go-round continued when Justin Foley filled the vacant spot left by Gomes’ sudden departure. Despite all this instability, the group’s commercial fortunes actually improved with 2004’s The End of Heartache peaking at number 21 on the Billboard 200, while its title track single picked up a Grammy nomination. The release of WWE favorite “This Fire Burns,” appearances at Ozzfest and Reading and Leeds festivals and live album (Set This) World Ablaze maintained their profile until the release of 2006 fourth LP, As Daylight Dies, which like its predecessor also passed the half-million mark. In 2009, the band joined Disturbed’s Music as a Weapon IV festival and appeared alongside Marilyn Manson, Mayhem and Bullet For My Valentine at Mayhem Festival, while their eponymous fifth effort charted at a career high of No.7 in the US. In 2010, Jones revealed he would not be performing on the band’s winter tour with The Devil Wears Prada and Dark Tranquility, and was temporarily replaced by former vocalist Leach and All That Remains’ Philip Labonte. After a two-year break in which D’Antonio founded Death Ray Vision and various members reunited with Leach once again to form Times of Grace, Jones left the fold permanently. Leach then took over the frontman role full-time and returned to the studio with the rest of the group for 2013’s Disarm the Descent, a second consecutive Top 10 entry which also spawned a second Grammy nod in the shape of “In Due Time.” In 2015, the band contributed to the Catch the Throne mixtape series and headed out on a summer tour with Rise Against and letlive.
